MSNBC's Joe Scarborough solemnly skewers Washington's muted response to Texas massacre

The Morning Joe team expressed frustration with everyone from the media to the government following the church shooting in Texas on Sunday that left 26 people dead. "We are sadly coming up on the five-year anniversary next month of Sandy Hook," co-host Joe Scarborough pointed out. "And there were a lot of people that said ... if that's not going to do it, what is? And now we have Southern Baptist churches getting shot up."

The shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, is the fifth-worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, with the deadliest attack, in Las Vegas, taking place just last month.

"Had [the Texas shooter] been a radical Islamic terrorist with a beard named Mohammed, Washington would be melting down right now," Scarborough said. Read more about President Trump's response to the attack here, and watch the segment from Morning Joe below. Jeva Lange
